    Here's a tip for the thrifters that also go to estate sales.

    Vitamins.
    Seriously. Unopened and unexpired bottles of vitamins and supplements can bring good money. I don't mean the Wal Mart Nature's Way vitamins. But, there are people that spend big $ on supplements and they can be flipped for money.

    Now, don't go out and buy a bunch and flood the market. My wife would kill me. She makes $$$ selling vitamins from estate sales.

    By vitamins do you mean prescription pain killers, medicinal herb, and poppers?

    Today was a damn good day. It started off with those Ann Demeulemeester piratey combat boots, and then a bunch of stuff in my size.

    I haven't figured out where to set up in my new place, it's late, cloudy and iPhone, so these photos all suck.

    I'm pretty sure the Etons and these three jackets were from one guy.
    it doesn't really show up in the photos but this is a 100% wool seersucker unlined jacket. The buttons are gross so I'm going to swap those out and this will be constantly worn come summer.

    This is the current label right? Since everything was from the same dude I didn't even look at the vent situation on this one. unvented. :fu:

    Underpriced consignment on this bad boy. Cotton & silk & unstructured goodness. It'll probably be April before I wear this though.

    Can I get a quick garbage check?

    I vaguely remember seeing balmain jeans here before being desirable.

    Pendleton shirts are literally what got me into selling clothing on eBay. Being a casual thrifter for years, I knew Pendletons were a great brand to look out for... One day I found 7 Pendletons for $5 each... Threw them up on eBay, and the rest is history. I only sell them in fall and winter, and hoard them the rest of the year. They're almost always an easy $30 for me. The westerns are $40+. I sold a limited edition beach boys board shirt for $90 not too long ago. Even if they're shrunk, I'll still grab them if they're cheap, and aren't otherwise damaged. I've sold many with rips and holes for $20+ too.

    Okay guys looking for some thread expertise.
    Found my first barbour waxed jacket today. I am very happy as this was probably the top thing on my thrifting list. However it is quite a bit lighter than the ones I know.

    I am coming up blank online. Very light weight almost like a rain parka. I would think of it as a military "waterproof." Truth is I really like the lightness. As I live in Dallas I would think this could be used as a rain coat a good part of the year.
    Any help with what this is is appreciated.
    Edit: it may be an unlined Durham.
